A British soldier has died after being injured in an explosion in Afghanistan, said the Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The soldier from 1st Battalion, Coldstream Guards, died after the blast in the Babaji area of Helmand Province.
He died "doing his duty" said Task Force Helmand spokesman Lt Col David Wakefield. Next of kin have been told.
His death - the 99th UK fatality this year - brings the number of British military personnel killed on operations in Afghanistan since 2001 to 236.
